On May 20, 2017, The Piedmont Environmental Council hosted our annual meeting "Engage. Educate. Empower" at the Middleburg Agricultural Research Extension (MARE) Center. The event started with workshops in the morning led by PEC staff and partners, followed by remarks by Bridgett McIntosh, equine extension specialist with Virginia Tech, then Chris Miller, President of The Piedmont Environmental Council, and Robert Bonnie, our keynote, and former Under Secretary of Natural Resources and the Environment at the United States Department of Agriculture.
